Hill Country a Hit

megaepicure | Jul 28, 2008 05:15 AM

My husband and I went to Hill Country for dinner last night, despite reading a few negative reviews. To my relief (it was my suggestion!), we had a really good experience both food and service-wise.

We shared a combo that included pork ribs, beef ribs, brisket and chicken. The pork ribs were amazing. If you order one thing, this is it. The brisket and chicken were both very good. The only miss was the beef ribs, which were dry and basically devoid of meat. Luckily, I was so full of everything else that I couldn't complain.

We also got four sides - cowboy caviar, green bean casserole, german potatoes, and cucumber salad. The potatoes and cucumber salad were great. The cowboy caviar was a nice, cold counterpoint to the salty meat, but the green bean casserole was a little blah.

Service from start to finish was impressive - friendly wait staff and butchers/cooks who took the time to find out what we liked and I even saw samples being offered to the undecided.

While the set-up can seem a little precious and it was getting really crowded by the time we left, the food and service made it a great experience.
